And yes Dot, your "tidbits" are very interesting, keep sharing.

And I agree, the tidbits are great, Dot.
I'm glad to see so many of us are doing this. I have browsed the WW message boards the past few days but I don't feel inspired to post there. lol I used to be very active there years ago. In 2004, I think. But I just don't feel connected there now. Not like I do with fellow ScrapGirls! lol
Yesterday went well for me. Points wise. I don't think I had enough vegetables though. Gee, did I even eat a vegetable yesterday? I did have fruit but I need to make sure to include veggies. I still haven't had a chance to look through the cookbook I bought. I want to get by Walmart to see if they have the 5 ingredient one. I assume it's a new Points Plus version.

I am going to do my weigh ins on Fridays, what days do you other ladies weigh in?

Before you go shopping, read some of the articles at ww online. There are some super ones about power foods, family friendly meal plans and budget wise shopping and things like that. You'll probably like them, I printed several out and refer to them a lot.

My favorite take away saying from all the (many) meetings I have attended is.....
"If hunger isn't the problem, then food is not the solution."
Like that? So often I find myself looking in the refrigerator, and if I remember to ask myself if I am actaully hungry or just bored, it's a 75-25 split of boredom over hunger. For bored, fill in......... stressed, angry, happy, sad, anxious.....

I started again seriously January 2010 (using the Monthly Pass program) because I'm older now and need to change my lifestyle. I started out really good and lost 30 lbs by August. Was looking better and feeling good so my DH joined me too (he does his with paper/pen). Then, we went on an extended Amtrak trip and I fell off track (pun intended), and have been lazy about getting serious again. I've regained a little, not all of the 30, and have started tracking and buying the right foods again. I love the eTools and track on my mobile phone. It's like a game.
I used to weigh in on Friday mornings on my way to work but couldn't stay for the meetings. My leader has an email list and she sends out recipes and tips every month. I have gone off the Monthly Pass and am just using the eTools now. My DH and I still weigh in every Friday morning. He's doing better than me
In '86 I had lost my "baby fat" 20 lbs; I would like to lose 30 more to get within the healthy range for my height. I should be there by August. Hopefully!

Melanie, I picked up that cookbook at Walmart the other day.
So, now I have 2 new cookbooks with PointsPlus points...and I still don't have the 5 ingredient one. lol
Kathi, for some reason, the men seem to lose weight faster than us gals. Drats! lol
Brenda, good for you! That's great that y'all are doing it together like that.

I had a first last night....I weighed 2oz. of dry pasta and cooked only that much. It was really funny, because usually I just dump the whole box into a huge pot of boiling water and eat whatever I want. Last night, even if I wanted more, I'd have had to cook it and that was just too much trouble! I added some veggies and olives and it all worked out, but what a strange feeling! (and good I guess) LOL
